This weekend, the "World's Most Famous Arena" is the home for perhaps the world's most famous boxer. Gennady Golovkin, the undisputed Middleweight Champion, comes into the fight with a perfect 36-0 record, with 33 of those wins coming by way of knockout. That knockout rate of 92% is the highest knockout rate percentage in middleweight history and has allowed GGG to become boxing's latest superstar. Hell, it's been almost ten years since the last time GGG didn't knock out his opponent. Some would say it could take a miracle to take down Golovkin. Others would say, all it could take is the Miracle Man. Luckily for boxing fans, the Miracle Man will also be present at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night.
Daniel Jacobs isn't just some pushover challenger. The top contender for the Middleweight championship comes into the Garden with a record of 32-1, having won his last 12 matches by stoppage. Jacobs is also a Brooklyn native, so the fight will be in his backyard.
It's the Super World Middleweight Champion vs. the World Middleweight Champion. Can Jacobs handle Golovkin, or will he end up just another victim? It all goes down on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden and you can watch it live on HBO PPV at 9 p.m. Eastern.
